Best Quotes about Knowledge
Man is not weak; knowledge is more than equivalent to force.
All knowledge is ambiguous.
Habgood, J. S.
He who knows others is clever; He who knows himself has discernment.
We can only learn to know ourselves and do what we can -- namely, surrender our will and fulfill God's will in us.
Teresa of Avila, St.
Acquire new knowledge whilst thinking over the old, and you may become a teacher of others.
No matter what happens, there's always somebody who knew it would.
How do you know so much about everything? was asked of a very wise and intelligent man; and the answer was By never being afraid or ashamed to ask questions as to anything of which I was ignorant.
Knowledge of the world in only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
When you see the abyss, and we have looked into it, then what? There isn't much room at the edge -- one person, another, not many. If you are there, others cannot be there. If you are there, you become a protective wall. What happens? You become part of t
Self knowers always dwell in El Dorado; they drink from the fountain of youth, and at all times owners of all they wish to enjoy.
Bristol, Claude M.
To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge.
He who knows only his own side of the case, knows little of that.
Mill, John Stuart
Who knows most believes least.
I honestly believe it is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so.
One thing only I know, and that is that I know nothing.
To despise our own species is the price we must often pay for knowledge of it.
Colton, Charles Caleb
Knowledge, humbles a great person, astonishes the common, and puffs up the small.
You can't know too much, but you can say too much.
The knower and the known are one. Simple people imagine that they should see God as if he stood there and they here. This is not so. God and I, we are one in knowledge.
Knowledge may give weight, but accomplishments give luster, and many more people see than weigh.
Knowledge and timber shouldn't be much used till they are seasoned.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.
Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.
The knowledge of God is far from the love of Him.
There is, so I believe, in the essence of everything, something that we cannot call learning. There is, my friend, only a knowledge -- that is everywhere.
The hunger and thirst for knowledge, the keen delight in the chase, the good humored willingness to admit that the scent was false, the eager desire to get on with the work, the cheerful resolution to go back and begin again, the broad good sense, the unaffected modesty, the imperturbable temper, the gratitude for any little help that was given -- all these will remain in my memory though I cannot paint them for others.
Maitland, Frederic William
Many of us don't have to turn out the lights to be in the dark.
We have an opportunity for everyone in the world to have access to all the world's information. This has never before been possible. Why is ubiquitous information so profound? It's a tremendous equalizer. Information is power.
Know thyself. A maxim as pernicious as it is ugly. Whoever studies himself arrest his own development. A caterpillar who seeks to know himself would never become a butterfly.
He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging. He must not be afraid to return again and again to the same matter; to scatter it as one scatters earth, to turn it over as one turns over soil. For the matter itself is only a deposit, a stratum, which yields only to the most meticulous examination what constitutes the real treasure hidden within the earth: the images, severed from all earlier associations, that stand --like precious fragments or torsos in a collector's gallery --in the prosaic rooms of our later understanding.
To grow wiser means to learn to know better and better the faults to which this instrument with which we feel and judge can be subject.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
Knowledge is that which, next to virtue, truly raises one person above another.
'Tis not need we know our every thought or see the work shop where each mask is wrought wherefrom we view the world of box and pit, careless of wear, just so the mask shall fit and serve our jape's turn for a night or two.
Know yourself, master yourself, conquest of self is most gratifying.
A knowledge of men is the prime secret of business success.
Mills, Darius Ogden
Knowledge, like religion, must be experienced in order to be known.
Whipple, Edwin P.
Knowledge is knowing that we cannot know.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You have to believe in God before you can say there are things that man was not meant to know. I don't think there's anything man wasn't meant to know. There are just some stupid things that people shouldn't do.
Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge -- broad, deep knowledge -- is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heartthrobs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life.
To know yourself, see how others do, to know others look into your own heart.
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
What's scary in life is not what people know (or don't know), but what they know that ain't so.
Paige, Leroy ''Satchel''
The knowledge of an unlearned man is living and luxuriant like a forest, but covered with mosses and lichens and for the most part inaccessible and going to waste; the knowledge of the man of science is like timber collected in yards for public works, which still supports a green sprout here and there, but even this is liable to dry rot.
Thoreau, Henry David
We are in fact convinced that if we are ever to have pure knowledge of anything, we must get rid of the body and contemplate things by themselves with the soul by itself. It seems, to judge from the argument, that the wisdom which we desire and upon which we profess to have set our hearts will be attainable only when we are dead and not in our lifetime.
Knowledge is in the end based on acknowledgement.
A wise man, when asked how he had learned so much about everything, replied: By never being ashamed or afraid to ask questions about anything of which I was ignorant.
Knowledge without practice is like a glass eye, all for show, and nothing for use.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself. Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. We continue to shape our personality all our life. If we knew ourselves perfectly, we should die.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge.
